Dec 21, 2009 – Has a setback diminished your confidence? Have your current circumstances changed in a way that leaves you feeling as though you have taken steps backward instead of forward? Are you finding a situation turning out not as you expected in spite of all you put into it? If you view what is happening now as a setback, then you are allowing yourself to become stuck in what was and what is versus what can be.
Take an MM&I Moment to get yourself to think forward. Take a look at what has changed and then list what small actions you can take to shift it forward to where you would like to be. What have you learned about yourself as a result of these changes? Take a look at the situation that has not turned out the way you would have liked and then list small actions you can take to make it more of what you would like right now. These small action steps will help you in thinking forward and moving forward.
